My current obsession… collecting data on how inefficient IT is. Andy how we can reverse the trend. James has some interesting points culled from IBM…
- Over 78% of data centers were built before dotcom era
- Data centers use 10-30x more energy per square foot than office space
- For every 100 units of energy piped into a data center, only about 3 units are used for actual computing- more than half is cooling.
- in distributed computing environments up to 85% of computing capacity can sit idle
